High density
fiber optic cable

We have seen the surge of data traffic through increasing video stream and cloud applications. The number of hyperscale data center has reached more than 500. It is expected to grow more. High density fiber optic cable accommodating several thousand optical fibers in the compact size is one of the essential technologies to realize the investment on data centers economical and sustainable. Sumitomo Electric, the pioneer of high-fiber-count cable for decades, has been offering up to 6912-fiber count cable with advanced Freeform Ribbon™ technology with high density connectivity solutions. We support the ideal cable management with various options such as fire-retardant cable and micro duct technology.

SUMITOMO ELECTRIC Ultra High Fiber Density Micro Duct Cable

Air-blown microduct cable installation

Microducts are relatively smaller diameter ducts compared to the conventional 1.5”/2.0” conduit. Installing small diameter microduct fiber optic cables into the microduct is conducted by air-blowing. More fibers in a limited space can be installed by introducing microduct cable.

Advantages over traditional pulling installation

  • Scalable cable management
  • Longer installation distance achievable
  • Smaller working space
  • Reduction of connection points
  • Easier operational work of installation
